Week in Review – June 21, 2013

las vegasOur on-location coverage of the Royal Princess continued to top the news this week with a story on the top “wow” features of the new ship. Our cruise editor was particularly impressed by the design of the ship’s massive Grand Atrium, the top pool deck and the SeaWalk with nearby SeaView bar.

On land, we were looking ahead to the Fourth of July with our roundup of the top festivities taking place in Las Vegas that weekend.

We also highlighted the Henderson 4th of July Celebration and the Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade.
